What it means to serve
Serving others is a direct result of our connection with Christ and growth in our relationship with Him. Our focus on serving one another is a necessity example to be an affective witness for Christ and His Kingdom. Our efforts in this area revolve around all the actions and ministries within our church walls in striving to authentically serve just as Christ served. These ministries are geared to involve our community of believers in hands on service to others, making us as a whole more capable of serving the needs of the people here in Pooler.
The gospel of Jesus Christ has radically changed each person who has accepted Him as Lord and Savior. We at Pooler FBC believe that we are to be agents of change in the world as well. We believe that since Creator God takes us, broken and sinful, and breathes new spiritual life into us through the power of the gospel, then we too can put the gospel into action in practical ways in a broken and sinful society. We seek to make a difference in persons’ lives and in the community through practical ways while building bridges to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to reach out to families in need, to show random acts of kindness to those we meet and to outreach to our community through events and projects connecting us to them and them to Jesus Christ.
"As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen."
